During the month of July the UON Team have been fundraising and collecting donations to assist the efforts of the Perth Homeless Support Group. The PHSG is a not-for-profit charity organisation assisting the homeless on the streets of Perth, WA. The group collects donated items of food, clothing or basic comfort, and creates care packages which are handed out in group walks in the Perth area.
On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless. Winter is an especially tough time for the homeless as shelter from the elements can be difficult to find, with donated blankets and sleeping bags becoming essential for survival. By supporting the Perth Homeless Support Group, the UON Team is directly assisting those affected in the winter months.
The UON Team are proud to share that 55 food and personal care items were collected over the month and donated to the PHSG, including $220 in coin collections. Each month the UON Team chooses a new charity to support through a range of initiatives, such as loose change collections or donating personal items.
